Look: A. freshly installed debian /etc/default/rcS -> ASYNCMOUNTNFS=yes (default) init-+-ifup---sh---run-parts---mountnfs---mount---mount.cifs (OK, cifs share mounted) /etc/default/rcS -> ASYNCMOUNTNFS=no init-+-init---rc---startpar---startpar---mountnfs.sh---mountnfs---mount---mount.cifs (no network still - ok, logical) B. my machine /etc/default/rcS -> ASYNCMOUNTNFS=yes (default) mount.cifs never gets called!!! /etc/default/rcS -> ASYNCMOUNTNFS=no init---rc---startpar-+-startpar--mountnfs.sh---mountnfs---mount---mount.cifs (no network still - also logical) I experimented with ASYNCMOUNTNFS but found that it should be left alone to its default -> YES. So, at the bottom line, /sbin/ifup which eventually mounts cifs shares never gets called at my machine. And then it occured to me: I'm using wicd which is known (http://goo.gl/8Ysf) to not call ifup scripts. So I'm either going to get rid of wicd, or get wicd scripts options call mount -a...
